What about a bronze statue of Mr Ellis in Parliament Square holding the Burghfield Common?

I was quite happy fishing my club lake with a couple of mates for a few years then all of a sudden they wanted to set goals, target fish and challenges. To do that meant mostly giving up the club lake and getting serious. It was never the same after that. When I look back I really miss those times, nearly everyone had nicknames, loads of banter, some great laughs. The gear we had was modest as well, 3 of us could go for a weekend in a Ford Escort with a roof rack.
There were bigger fish elsewhere but the club lake was my best time fishing.

Or 31% werenít caught

I think to be of your mindset is to see fishing as a competition, which I donít. I could never get annoyed with anyone for catching a fish and/or posting it online because I simply donít see fishing as a sport or a competition.

If people want to break rules and run the risk of losing their ticket then so be it. I would personally rather not bother so I can relax when Iím fishing and not feel the need to hide.

And to address your point about huge challenge. Itís clearly one of the biggest ďchallengesĒ in carp fishing, thatís obvious. It all fades into insignificance though when you compare it to proper sports, holding down a job, being a decent father... etc etc. This thread is becoming a storm in a very small teacup.

One difference I think we may see is that Mr Ellis strikes me as just maybe being a bit of a media whore so is going to rinse this, previous captors took a pic (or in Laney's case video footage of the actual take) and maybe an article and/or talked on a podcast about it. This is going to be a movie, a book and maybe even a musical when they open up the West End

Of course there is an element of luck involved in any capture but if you look at the last few captors (which I think are John H, Oz H, Dave L, Scott L , Tom S and Greg E) they are all top, top anglers (no matter what anyone thinks of them). It tends not to be 'lucked'out by your average Joe. You make your own luck to an extent imo.
